Re: Icom IC-970 for sats?



Ditto on the IC-970 satellite radio!

I still consider my IC-970 the best Satellite rig I've ever had.
I also have an FT-847, one IC-910H, and two IC-821s...
The IC-910H and IC-821s are all good rigs, but the IC-970
is top!

The only thing I wish all the ICOM Satellite radios had---
is the ability to program them with computer software.
